    The goals of Biosolids Treatment Processes, is to: (1) to cover entire environmental fields, including air and noise pollution control, solid waste processing and resource recovery, physicochemical treatment processes, biological treatment processes, biosolids management, water resources, natural control processes, radioactive waste disposal and ...

  • Advanced Physicochemical Treatment Processes

    Leading pollution control educators and practicing professionals describe how various combinations of different physico-chemical treatment processes can be arranged to solve air, noise, and thermal pollution problems. In Advanced Physicochemical Treatment Processes, the authors discuss strategies for abating pollution by converting it into a less ...

  • Biotechnology for Odor and Air Pollution Control

    Biotechnology offers one of the most economical and environmentally benign methods of air pollution control for industrial and municipal airstreams. Volatile organic and inorganic odorous compounds from various industries are emitted in large quantities and create hazards to the ecosystem and health effects to humans. Thus, the demand for odor and ...

  • Advances in Air Pollution Modeling for Environmental Security

    The protection of our environment is one of the major problems in society. More and more important physical and chemical mechanisms are to be added to the air pollution models. Moreover, reliable and robust control strategies for keeping pollution caused by harmful compounds under certain safe levels have to be developed and used in a routine way. ...

  • Handbook on Biodegradation and Biological Treatment of Hazardous Organic Compounds

    The removal of chemical pollutants in biological treatment systems and during bioremediation activities is dependent on the capacity of microorganisms to degrade synthetic chemicals. This book presents, for more than 100 synthetic compounds, an overview of the biodegradation processes and pathways that yield detoxification and mineralisation. ...

  • Control of Odors & Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants - MOP 25

    The principal reference of contemporary practice for managing air emissions from wastewater systems. MOP 25 combines updated materials from two former WEF Publications - Odor Control in Wastewater Treatment Plants and Toxic Air Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Facilities into a comprehensive format. Public awareness of odors and air pollutants ...

  • Medical Waste Auto Claves: Not Just A Lot Of Hot Air (PDS)

    Our industry has seen the development of 'alternative medical waste treatment technologies', thanks in part to stringent air quality standards along with public sentiment opposed to incineration, resulting in a decline in use of on-site medical waste incinerators. Steam sterilization has emerged as an acceptable method of treatment prior to ...

  • VOC Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants: Characterization, Control and Compliance

    Although primarily concerned with the treatment of wastewater and water quality, publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are required to be in compliance with the Federal Clean Air Act and an increasingly stringent series of Clean Air Act Amendments to control emissions of odors, criteria pollutants, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). How POTWs ...

  • Air Quality in Airplane Cabins and Similar Enclosed Spaces

    The issue of aircraft air quality is attracting considerable attention of late, as access to public air travel has expanded exponentially. Aircrew and passengers are increasingly concerned about operating and service decisions that could affect their health, comfort, and safety. The editor of this volume invited a wide range of experts to provide ...

  • Air, Water and Soil Quality Modelling for Risk and Impact Assessment

    Environmental pollution by harmful anthropogenic substances and uncontrolled use of natural reserves have become a global problem and require substantial efforts for developing and applying efficient measures of control, mitigation and abatement. For achieving this goal predictions of possibly resulting risks and impacts are urgently needed for ...
